Wtth ref to my other thread about scanning I need to scan a copy of something I have just printed This what it should look like

http://www.ramblers.co.uk/programmes/print.php?group=SX02 But when it prints there are only four dates to one page and it will be 14 pagesin total how do I compact it all into two or three pages

That is indeed a very long document which normally would take probably 10-15 pages of A4 print at least.

The only way I could suggest for reducing the printed size would be to adjust the Font to a much smaller size before printing - but then it might be too small to read easily!

I used printer settings as follows:

Scale set to 60%

Set to "fit to paper width"

All margins set at 0

Print preview then showed it filling 3 sheets of A4, however the font looked quite small.

Surely when I print this off it should not use fourteen pages but four at the very least,Why is it not printing what is showing what is on the web page.When I go into the web site and click on print preview it shows what I have just printed not what I wanted printed

Opened web page clicked on file then print preview then shrink to fit and choose 60 per cent then print I think this was suggested by Mr Mistoffelees and then print worked fine

On webpage link you gave | Edit | Select All | Copy

Open Excel | Paste

File | Page Setup | Landscape

Select rows 3 - 63 | Format | Row | Autofit

View | Page Layout

Now you can manually adjust everything to your hearts content to fit on your landscape sheets ready for printing.

after adjusting margins, I get that to 7 pages max at 100% normal

I may be missing something here but why do you want to scan this when it has just come off the web in electronic format? Why don't you just save it?
